新一代的干邑爱好者诞生了

他们不穿粗花呢,也不吸雪茄。 我们是姐姐和兄弟,苏菲和马克斯,我们是这一代的一部分,希望振兴干邑的世界。 对我们来说,干邑具有不同价值的独特融合:虽然它仍然活着,文化遗产,它总是靠近法国夏朗德地区,但我们发现,干邑依然代言着年轻的国际人士,他们所要求的复杂性,复杂性和多样性。创建。

半个多世纪前,我们的祖父母在干邑地区获得农业产权。 我们的家庭现在已经延续了三代人。 我们都非常接近这个世界的这个地区,并且在这里生活的所有领域里都有干邑的生产。

Alongside walnut and apple plantations, our family farmed wine and distilled Cognac. Since we can remember, friends and neighbors have made Cognac and shared their secrets with us, traditions that had been passed down to them over generations.

Cognac Expert honors these traditions by tying together our love for the region, ambitionto innovate, and fascination with sharing knowledge globally via the internet.
